Local Weather Channel Not Available on SD STB

Message 1 of 2
I have a standard definition STBI and can not get my local weather channel on 49. This is in the Columbia, MD area zip 21045. I can get channel 49 on my HD STB's but when I go to channel 49 on the SD stb it shows the channel either before 49 or after 49. Is this a problem with my stb or local programming? It is strange that I can get the channel on my HD STB's but not on the standard def box. Thanks for any info.

This is a signaling issue to the one SD box. To fix this, unscrew the coax cord off from both the SD box and the wall outlet. Make sure both tips are straight and free of oxidation. Screw both ends back on and see if you can get the channel back.
